Haula's (lower body) exit from Wednesday's game was not related to his previous issue and his considered precautionary, Sara Civian of The Athletic reports.
Haula appears to have escaped serious concern regarding his current issue, but it will still be worth ensuring he returns to game action as the regular season approaches. He was limited to just 15 games played last season due to injury, so the team will likely take every precaution with the winger, who produced 55 points over 76 games in 2017-18 with the Golden Knights.
Haula left Wednesday's game against the Lightning and won't return due to a lower-body injury, Michael Smith of the Hurricanes' official site reports.
Haula was dealing with the injury heading into the game, so this is likely an aggravation of some sort, though that wasn't confirmed by the team. The Finnish-born player was limited by injuries last season, only suiting up for 15 games. Expect the team to have an update regarding Haula's health in the coming days.
Haula (lower body) will play in Wednesday's preseason matchup with Tampa Bay, Joe Smith of The Athletic reports.
Haula will make his first appearance with the Hurricanes after being swapped from Vegas in the offseason. Injuries limited the Finnish center to a mere 15 outings, though he managed to rack up seven points in those games. Whether Haula can be the 55-point producer he was in his first season with the Golden Knights remains to be seen, but he should be in the mix for a top-six role as a winger.
